ABOUT THE SUMMIT

 

Deal with the impacts of the enormous policy and market rule changes happening now!

A year after Winter Storm Uri, the ERCOT market is undergoing the most fundamental reorganization and restructuring in its history. With a completely new set of decision-makers, the PUCT and ERCOT are driving mammoth changes that will impact every market participant in the Lone Star State. Reliability mandates and the financial fallout from the storm have called into question previous methods for managing financial and operational risk in this enormous energy market. What do leading market participants see coming? How are they planning to handle this tidal wave of change?

One year after Winter Storm Uri, Infocast has put together a truly expansive ERCOT Market Summit to help market participants understand the impacts of the existing changes and those yet to come, and to chart a successful course going forward in the Texas power market. It will bring policymakers together with utilities, renewable developers, IPPs, retail energy providers, end-use customers, financiers, and traders to explore the impacts on resource adequacy, power prices, project siting and bankability, and how to best meet the shifting needs of commercial, industrial and retail customers.

  • Assess how legislative, regulatory and market rule changes will impact ERCOT in 2022 and beyond
  • Understand how transmission constraints are affecting the market, and potential solutions to increase capacity and improve reliability
  • Hear how the energy needs of sophisticated new customers will drive development strategies
  • Evaluate how changes in price formation and new perspectives on risks are affecting opportunities to deploy solar, wind and storage in ERCOT
  • Learn what will be needed to assure the bankability of projects in ERCOT

The ERCOT Market Summit will provide a unique opportunity to hear the viewpoints of active market participants. This will be the first public gathering to discuss and analyze the radical changes already implemented in ERCOT, as well as those titanic shifts yet to come. If you want to succeed in this rapidly changing environment, attend this can’t miss event.
